For your protection and ours, please ensure that your billing and shipping address match, to assist us in fraud prevention. Our payment processing system may decline purchases due to a mismatch. 

Automated emails will be sent out by our store, and our shipping software, to notify you of your order status. You may receive multiple emails from both order status and tracking information. We want you to be completely informed as to the status and location of your order at all times. Please make sure that tracking emails haven’t found their way into your junk or spam filters.

PHLster products are available internationally through dealers. Please visit our Find A Dealer page for a list of International Dealers.

International Shipping Disclaimer
Please be aware that when shipping internationally, there can be potentially long delays in delivery once a package leaves the United States. This is beyond our control, and we may also lose the ability to track the package during this period. We are not responsible for any duties, fees, taxes, or other charges that may be incurred upon the package’s arrival in the destination country. Additionally, we adhere strictly to legal and ethical standards and do not alter or doctor any paperwork related to the shipments. Your order is dispatched with the understanding of these terms.

Any additional fees imposed by customs or other authorities are the responsibility of the recipient and must be paid directly to the relevant authorities.

We stand by an easy, no-hassle warranty policy for products used according to instructions. It doesn’t matter if you’re the original owner or if you acquired your gear second hand, if it’s broken, we’ll repair or replace the item. In the case of broken or missing hardware or belt attachments, all we need is a picture of what’s broken or missing and a shipping address and we’ll get you squared away. 
If your item is old enough that the model is discontinued, we’ll offer you a comparable replacement from our current product line. If you need warranty service, send us an email or fill out the warranty form. 
PLEASE NOTE: Our warranty only applies to products used according to the product directions. Products that have been modified, misassembled, or used incorrectly are not covered by warranty.

Sometimes brand new units are tighter than you might like them to be or older units are experiencing a little wear. We are happy to make adjustments to retention. If your new gear feels a little tight, check out the “Instructions” page on this website and make sure all the boxes are checked in terms of setting up and adjusting the included features of your holster. Once you’ve covered those bases and you’d still like an adjustment or if your aging gear needs a tuneup, send us an email and we’ll get it taken care of.

Returns Policy
Returns and exchanges are to be made through the point of purchase. If you bought an item through a dealer, please make your return through that dealer, per their return policy. 
New holsters, like new boots and new glasses, can take a little getting used to. We highly recommend spending a few consecutive days with your new holster before making a final decision on whether or not it’s comfortable. Use the instruction videos and educational content to make the various adjustments necessary to achieve the maximum comfort and concealment available. Please email prior to initiating a return as 99% of all comfort and concealment issue are resolved with a little personal attention and advice.

Some banks, especially for debit cards will hold funds from a declined authorization from 1-7 business days . This is the banks doing, and if you’ve been declined and money is being held please contact the phone number listed on the back of your credit card for assistance.

Important product use and safety information

Improper holster use can result in serious injury or death. Read (or watch, if applicable) and understand the product instructions, as well as the manual for your gun, prior to use.

If your holster is broken, defective, or incorrect for your gun, discontinue use IMMEDIATELY and contact us at

We stand by to assist you with any questions you may have about the product, and provide any assistance you may need. Do not hesitate to contact us, should you require service.

Inside the waistband and low-profile concealment holsters require extreme care when holstering the gun, due to their proximity to the body and their potential interaction with your clothing. Do not use or carry with a low-profile concealment holster without prior training and instruction from a qualified professional firearms instructor.

Prior to use, test fit and adjust your holster with an unloaded gun.

Unless explicitly stated, the holsters are not interchangeable. Do not use your holster with a gun unless it’s explicitly on the approved fit list of guns for that holster. For example, do not use CZ or P80 guns with your Glock-specific holster. Review the holster product page at for the comprehensive fit list for your holster.

Light-bearing holsters are light-specific. Do not use your light bearing holster with any light other than the light for which the holster is approved.

Firearms which have been substantially modified from their stock configuration should not be used with these holsters. Any grip work which has significantly changed the shape or dimension of the frame or trigger guard, substantially oversized controls or levers, or excessively lightened triggers should not be used in these holsters and could create an unsafe condition.When test fitting your holster with an unloaded gun, if you discover that an extended control, tall sight, frame modification, gun coating, or other customization causes an issue with holster fit, immediately discontinue use and contact us at Do not attempt to modify your holster or your gun to improve the fit.

Check the condition and tightness of all belt mounting hardware, fasteners, and adjusting screws prior to use, every day.

Apply thread locking compound (Blue Loctite 242, Vibrate VC3, or similar) to screws and fasteners, once you’ve finalized your holster adjustments.

If your gun is equipped with a safety, always make sure that the safety is engaged when holstering your gun.

De-cock all double/single action guns before holstering.

Always keep your trigger finger as high and away from the trigger guard as possible when drawing or holstering your gun.

Always be sure to completely clear any garments from the mouth of the holster when holstering the gun. Never “speed-reholster,” and always be sure that you can observe the holster and verify that it’s clear of any foreign items or materials prior to holstering the gun. Always ensure that no part of your body is in the path of the muzzle of the gun during the process of drawing or holstering the gun.

Do not cut, heat, grind or modify the holster shell for any reason.

Do not expose your holster to excessive heat, including radiators, fireplaces, space heaters, and the hot trunk of a car.

The comfort and concealment characteristics of your holster will depend on the hardware adjustments outlined in your product’s instructions. Adjusting the holster to yourself, and adjusting yourself to the holster will take time and is highly dependent on the individual.We are committed to your satisfaction and will be happy to assist you in this process.

With proper care, your holster will last many years. However, anything man-made can wear out or break. The maintenance and longevity of this product is your responsibility. Always inspect your holster for proper fit, hardware integrity, and cracks in the shell prior to use. If your holster becomes unserviceable, do not attempt to make a repair.

If your holster becomes unserviceable, do not attempt to make a repair. Contact us immediately at and we will be happy to provide any replacement parts you might need, including any and all hardware, and including the holster shell itself. Your holster has a comprehensive lifetime warranty, which we are happy to honor at any time.

Do you need extra holster length?*

*If you’re carrying a longer-muzzled gun or a revolver, adding extra holster length may not be necessary for you, but for short semiautomatic guns, it’s often helpful.

Guns with short muzzles can be top-heavy and difficult to conceal comfortably. To solve this, some holsters have extra length added to the muzzle end. Like the keel on a boat, the extra muzzle length helps balance the holster, making it more comfortable and easier to conceal. This is especially true if you have a bit of a belly, which tends to push the grip out more and make the muzzle dig in.

Note that while extra muzzle length reduces grip printing, it can increase muzzle printing, which can be a concern with lower carry positions and tight fitting pants such as leggings or yoga pants.
